Please plan to attend the Youth Literature Festival on October 22.  You are welcome to visit the booth created by Dr. Cheryl Light Shriner of the  Department of Special Education and several college students.  They will offer adapted story materials, props, and a hands-on interactive activity area for children with and without disabilities and a resource table for educators and parents.  Teachers, parents, and children are all encouraged to come and try out the materials and activities.  This booth area provides college students the opportunity to expand their skills in adapting literature and literacy materials for a wide range of abilities that children have and also the opportunity to interact with children, parents, and professionals.  Children enjoy the activities. Parents and teachers have mentioned in the past that the resources provided give them new ideas and materials that can be implemented in their homes or classrooms immediately.
